“When she is feeling well she is so happy, and I want to see her back to that again,” says Estefania’s mother. Say hello to Estefania, a one-year-old baby girl from Guatemala.
Staff at our medical partner Wuqu’ Kawoq tell us, “Estefania is a lovely little baby girl who is not growing well. She has recently had a bad intestinal infection which led to a lot of weight loss.” She has been diagnosed with malnutrition and is in need of adequate nourishment in order to regain weight and to begin to grow and develop healthily.
Her family makes enough money to get by, but medical care and high quality foods are too expensive. Wuqu’ Kawoq reports, “They’ve recently met a few other children in town who’ve been helped by Watsi, and they’ve come to us looking for help. They are hoping that we can prevent future severe infections and help Estefania start to eat better and grow again.”
For only $535, Estefania will be able to receive treatment for her acute malnutrition, allowing her to regain her appetite and develop normally.
